EMTEK Quietly Acquired Karir.com
Only three months after we posted the rumor about EMTEK Group’s (PT Elang Mahkota Teknologi) acquisition towards Karir.com, EMTEK, an Indonesian media conglomeration group which becomes the holding company of Lakupon, NexMedia, SCTV, Indosiar, and O Channel, has secretly sealed the deal.
The image of SCTV office would now welcome every netizen who pays a visit to Karir.com, along with a statement at the bottom of the page saying that:
Karir.com is now part of EMTEK Group. An integrated group of companies with three main business divisions: Media, Telecommunications and IT Solutions, and Connectivity.For Online Media, some of their portfolios are Liputan6.com, lakupon.com, vidio.com and now Karir.com.Stay tuned for the transformation of Karir.com for Indonesia.
As long as we know, there has yet any official publication for media so far, but the statement should be good enough to be regarded as a signal of (financial) support for Karir.com to strengthen its business, after being void for quite a while.
We expect that there would be interesting changes made by Karir.com, considering that it’s been left behind by other foreign similiar services like JobsDB, Jobstreet, or Monster.
